Private Foreshore Exploration

Follow in the footsteps of Mudlarks

Book one of our archaeologists for your private group (maximum group size 30) or book an archaeologist to yourself for 2 hours. Private exploration can be tailored to your needs and take place all year round on the day of your choice (staff and tide allowing). People book for many reasons including birthdays (both children and adults), special occasions or simply out of curiosity. We see a wide range of ages from retired people and third age study groups to children and their families. Happy exploring!



Booking dates are below or please email Lorraine: or call 020 8742 0057
